Went for a consult, never sent me a price. Told me he was very busy and didn't really need the business and it wouldn't hurt his feelings if I didn't choose him. So, I didn't. Horrible.

Dr. Cox completed a septoplasty and turbinoplasty procedure on my nose in December and this was my 3 month follow up appointment (but actually 6 months because of COVID19). He answered any questions I had in regards to regaining complete feeling back, he is very attentive when listening, and very respective of your time and appointment. I have always enjoyed my appointments with Dr. Cox and his assistant, Claire, because they are always so nice and actually there for the patient’s needs. I have already referred some friends and family to him, if they choose to correct a deviate septum.
